Americana is music sprung forth from the traditions of roots music, inspired by the many cultures that now call America home, from country and folk to roots rock and the Texas blues.

"I still struggle with how to explain what exactly Americana means. There is no clear definition nor should there be. Americana is about not being pigeon holed into one genre. Americana is the un-genre of genres..."

    Want to give a shout to a new generation of Americana royalty: Chelsea Crowell, daughter of Rodney Crowell & Roseanne Cash, granddaughter of Johnny Cash. New album is CRYSTAL CITY and it's pretty darn good!

    I am a fan of Emmy Lou Harris and am amazed that she has so little support in Last FM. She definitely is one of the greats of American country/bluegrass music. Are there any followers of her music in this group.

    I connected Robert Plant & Alison Krauss--I wasn't impressed with the collaboration, but alot of folks like it. Last year I noted Robert Plant & the Band of Joy concerts, but last fm doesn't distinguish between his Led-Zep days and his acoustic modern Band of Joy. I'm thinking that would just goof up our Similar Artists a bit too much.

    @ jcshepard : Could you connect Robert Plant & Alison Krauss and Robert Plant to the group please? I have always considered his collaboration with Alison Krauss and with Band of Joy as Americana.
